INES staff featured in the media
Lina Eklundh, Tomas Pugh, Anders Ahlström and Markku Rummukainen have been interviewed in different media outlets as experts in their corresponding fields.
Lina Eklund, associate senior lecturer, was recently interviewed in Göteborgs-Posten about a new report which warns that extreme heatwaves could make parts of the planet uninhabitable and cause one person in ten to be a climate refugee by 2050.
In the interview, Eklund is cited saying that an increasing number of researchers are proposing planned relocations of people from areas at risk of becoming uninhabitable and that resettlement projects should be included in climate adaptation measures.
Also Thomas Pugh, senior lecturer at the department, was interviewed, this time by the news program Rapport in SVT.
The interview is about a comprehensive risk analysis of how the world's forests will be affected by climate change in the future. In the mentioned study, it is shown that southern boreal forests in the Northen Hemisphere, as well as some forests in Africa and the Amazon, will be particularly vulnerable in the years up to 2100.
Lastly, Markku Rummukainen was recently interviewed in Borås tidning, on the new government's climate policy measures. Expanded nuclear power, more vehicle charging posts and investment in carbon capture are some of the features.
Rummukainen says that the proposals are good ones, but that they are not sufficient to achieve our society’s climate transition.
Anders Ahlström was featured in several media, about the news that Swedish natural forests may be gone in 50 years. He was for example interviewed by television channel 4 (in Swedish). The original research study was published in Earths Future.
